A budget is about more than numbers – a budget is about values. And the budget @realDonaldTrump released today is another big wet kiss to the super-rich & giant corporations, and it guts programs for everyone else.
See this? This is where @realDonaldTrump’s budget would eliminate the Public Student Loan Forgiveness program – the program that helps America’s public school teachers, nurses, police officers, & other public servants with their student loan debt. Poof, gone.
And see this? This is where @realDonaldTrump’s budget would completely wipe out community block grants – money that cities & towns in MA & across the country use for afterschool programs, public safety, legal aid, affordable housing, & other essential services. They’re gone.
Right here? This is @realDonaldTrump budget-speak for slashing Medicaid by billions of dollars. Basically the federal government would tell our most vulnerable Americans: “Sorry, you’re on your own.”
In the middle of a housing crisis, this is where @realDonaldTrump’s budget would gut @HUDgov. Huge cuts on housing for the elderly, huge cuts on housing for people with AIDS, and huge cuts for affordable housing. If Grandma doesn’t get a job, then sorry, Grandma.
And @realDonaldTrump’s budget doesn’t just hurt the elderly. Here’s the $220 billion he proposes in cuts to SNAP – food stamps for families to put food on the table. Food so children don’t have to go to bed hungry.
But @realDonaldTrump’s budget wouldn’t cut everything. There’s one place this budget is out of control: More ships. More jets. More nuclear weapons. And more money for his monument to hate and division.
Budgets reflect our values – and this budget doesn’t reflect our values one dime. We believe in opportunity, and that means investing to build a future – not just for some of our kids, but for all of our kids.
